“I’ve learned a lot already and really excited about all the presentations that we’ve seen so far.

“It’s my third time at Open Nation and each time I come back with a lot of inspiration and motivation to do a little bit different in our community, so I learned a lot about outreach, which is one of our key challenges definitely. And about how to bring leadership more engaged in our community.”- Henriette Hultmann, Specialist & Site Manager, Vestas Wind Systems

“And there’s very good information, very good feedback from other people that I’ve spoken to about how we can take something tweak it. I’ve already learned a couple tricks or things that we want to take back. We’re taking notes like crazy. We’re pretty excited to be here. I’ve been to a lot of software conferences. This is a really good one. It is! It is.”- David Brockmyre, Amway
